Seriously, those arXiv articles are a waste of time these days.

yeah arXiv is not exactly Rocket Science, with about one exception. Mostly statisticians and brain surgeons there?    Actually my next paper (supposedly accepted is about something close to brain surgery, update will follow in good time (probably)

this u-tube  is so good it can not be repeated often enough

I've been reviewing a paper for the last couple of nights.

So you got involved in Charity work now, that is impressive!! "I really admire you, but I dont think I ever could do what you do. I said that because it is emotionally draining, not because it is hard.  I mean, It is not exactly brain surgery is it?"

yes that is not exactly brain surgery, it is Rocket Science! And I should now!

Is this a quote or you? The emotions are draining only if one tries to stop them. And you should know.

quote message from my brain surgeon "friend" further up/down in thread...he and I think much the same, except he is only a brain surgeon...not exactly a Rocket Scientist! And I should now! Rocket Science, belive me, is Very Complex!

For me emotions are nothing more than high octane rocket fuel! Nothing more, nothing less! Just burn through them, and hope for re-fill.

did this musical screw up (I mean down) the speed on photon rockets?

My grandpa taught me that I need to return for free to the world a part of what I gained from it. Otherwise my character will go bad. Since I cannot afford making my character any worse, I do quite a lot of charity stuff (except for one, of course).

I sense some anti-cat propaganda here. Are you going to offer me the passport of the Soyuz Caninskikh Carnivorskikh Republik next?
